Rome DVD season two Box set
This DVD, the final season of the acclaimed HBO drama, retails normally for 40-60$. However, this unused DVD box set of 5 CDs is signed on the outside top of the box in sharpie by Kevin McKidd, who plays the lead character of Lucius Vorenus. Completely unopened and unused, this item was sent directly with Kevin’s approval for use in the Kevin McKidd Online Charity Fund. His signature is recent and verified by photo of his actual signing, which we can include for the winning bidder.
A Promotional MW2 T-shirt
This White men's LG t-shirt, 100% cotton, never worn, with Kevin McKidd's signature, is a promotional item only available for pre-order thru the company that is officially licensed to sell this merchandise. This means you will be one of the few to have this tshirt available NOW and the ONLY one to have Kevin's rarely offered signature on a collectible item. Great gift for any gamer! Kevin is the voice of "Soap MacTavish" in this recently released video game.

Thank you so much for your support, on behalf of everyone at Kevin McKidd Online and Kevin himself.
No, not really; just in flashbacks.
If you think Owen's (Kevin McKidd) PTSD episodes that nearly choked the life out of his relationship with Cristina (Sandra Oh) are over, think again. As a follow-up to flashback-heavy "Time Warp" on Grey's Anatomy, the ABC medical series is traveling not just in time but overseas, as an upcoming March/April episode will take us to the frontlines of the Iraq War.
Fancast is reporting that the same episode will also revive the hitherto dead triangle between Owen, Cristina, and Teddy (Kim Raver). As Teddy's advances on Owen were negatively received by a lot of Grey's Anatomy viewers, the episode will hopefully shed some long overdue insight into what exactly Owen and Teddy went through as Army doctors.
Maybe some perspective into the matter will bring more people to Team Teddy? OK, maybe not.
Nevertheless, the March/April installment will no doubt bring "more revelations" from Owen's past, said Hunt. Thanks to therapy, Owen had been able to address his PTSD, but Teddy being in Seattle Grace might bring back some unwanted memories. Already, Grey's Anatomy is casting five other young military types, one female, four male, for the intense scenes.
In other Grey's Anatomy news, no respite for fans of the as-of-now doomed Mark (Eric Dane) and Lexie (Chyler Leigh) tandem, as there seems to be no reconciliation in sight for the two, at least for the mean time. In fact, when Grey's returns March 4, a female doctor will catch the attention of McSteamy. This is hardly surprising, as he even tried to hit on Blond!Lexie.

Press Release ~ World Poker Tour Invitational Sets Records with 567 Players and More Than $100,000 Raised
BusinessWire - More than 100 celebrities and industry VIPs took on poker's biggest players at the tables last weekend for the 8th Annual World Poker Tour(R) Invitational. Kicking off Saturday night with red carpet arrivals at Commerce Casino in Los Angeles, the three-day Texas Hold 'Em tournament pulled a record-setting field of 567 players and raised $109,700 for Chrysalis (www.changelives.org), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping economically disadvantaged and homeless individuals become self-sufficient through employment opportunities.
Some familiar faces who pulled up a chip and a chair for charity included Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart, Teri Hatcher, Dave Annable and Odette Yustman, Jenny McCarthy, Hank Azaria, Jerry Ferrara, Eddie Cibrian and LeeAnn Rimes, Jamie Lynn Sigler, Kevin McKidd, Oliver Hudson, Camryn Manheim, Donnie Wahlberg, Jennifer Tilly, Michael Vartan, Laura Prepon, Billy Burke, Ian Gomez, Shannon Elizabeth, Danny Masterson, Chris Masterson, Tia Carrere, Jesse Spencer, Matthew Lillard, and Sara Rue, as well as poker pros Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Erik Seidel, Mike "the Mouth" Matusow, Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Laak, Mark Seif, Prahlad Freidman, JC Tran and many others.
"We're overwhelmed by the generosity of all the players and celebrities in supporting Chrysalis," said Mark Loranger, Chrysalis CEO. "With $100,000 raised this evening, thousands of men and women in Los Angeles will be able to transition out of poverty and homelessness into a more hopeful future. We salute the WPT for hosting a world class event that gives back so much to the community."
After 15 hours of play spread over two days, Alfonso Ribiero, Willie Garson and Kirk Acevedo proved they could hold their own, placing in the top 50, while for the second year in a row Ricki Lake proved her poker prowess, busting out in 18th place. She was followed immediately by Marlon Wayans in 17th while Grant Heslov and David Zayas just barely missed the final 6, busting out in ninth and seventh place respectively.
The final six players include reality star Trishelle Cannatella, poker pro Thor Hansen, Commerce Casino satellite winner Steve Elliott, Bellagio satellite winner Sean Urban, amateur player Neev Baram and LeRon Washington from Virginia, who qualified to play in the Invitational through www.ClubWPT.com, WPT's legal subscription poker website. They will return to Commerce Casino on March 3 to play in front of WPT television cameras for a WPT title and a piece of the $200,000 prize pool generously donated by Commerce Casino. The winner will take home a $100,000 first place prize, which includes a $25,500 seat in the WPT World Championship held at Bellagio in April.
"Once again it is Commerce Casino's honor to host an event that has become the premier celebrity event in poker, and at the same time, can benefit so many people in need," said John Griffo, Commerce Casino Director of Poker Operations. "After eight years, the World Poker Tour Invitational just continues to get better and better, and proves once again that Commerce is Hollywood's casino to the Hollywood stars."
Its that time again, time for the Winter Olympics, and I'm sure like me you have been watching it on the TV over the last few weeks. Not to mention that it has disrupted the screening of Grey's Anatomy for a few of our members.
All this talk of Winter sports, of which curling is one, got me to think about Kevin's role in the movie The Last Chance. Curling schedule for the Olympics
The Last Chance It's one of the few movies ever to use curling as a plot device...

Curling takes to the silver screen
Now it may not have a reputation as a glamorous sport but the world of curling is to become the setting of a new Scottish film. The Bums' Rush (The last Chance) is being produced by actor Dougray Scott who also has a small role in the black comedy.
With production starting next week in the Highlands, the star and the rest of cast gingerly took to the ice for their first practice session.
The actors' first curling practice proved an amusing interruption to this afternoon's game for the ladies of Greenacres Curling Club, as the cast of Scotland's latest film line up for their first venture onto the ice.
Dougray Scott said: "I play a small part, Frankie the fence whose life is the curling club, know a lot of people have passions in their life, some have football, others golf, Frankie has curling, a bit sad really, shouldnt say that. Its a very good game, I've just had a go and its good fun."
Stewart Svaasand, the writer and director, said: "We do hope that we can do curlers some justice and they dont look like complete novices but we are under no illusions that after one lesson, they are not going to be the finished article."
The film follows three friends whose lives are changed forever when they think they strike gold in the hills but their plans are ruined when it comes to the attention of the local curling club. For the moment, the stars are more concerned with just keeping upright.
Jamie Sives said: "We watched all these ladies playing it earlier and they were making it look very easy but as soon as we got on the ice we were all over the place."
Kevin McKidd added: "I'm just doing the brooming thing, I don't know what it's called, the back and forth with the stick. I don't think I'll be frequenting the curling rink after this, it's a bit too nippy for me as well."
The cast will have to get used to those chilly temperatures, with filming due to get underway next week, it seems they will have to put in plenty of practise.
One Last chance director Stewart Svaasand on curling
We got quite competitive about curling, actually. Kevin McKidd and Jimmy Chisholm and me became particularly competitive. They won't admit it, but they were taking it seriously! Man, it's such a difficult sport. I mean, total respect to these guys who play it. It's so tough. You turn up and watch these people who are getting on in years throwing these stones and sliding up and down the ice gracefully and wonder how hard can it be. But graceful we were not. It was hard to film the curling scenes too. We did one tracking shot across the ice. We put the director of photography on a rubber mat and just pulled him along (Source)
